Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Meet your guide at Bangkok Airport before being driven by private transfer to your boutique hotel, which provides a peaceful oasis in the bustling city. You may have some time free to relax this afternoon — Lumphini Park is close to your hotel to explore.

  • Have a private guided tour of Bangkok today, visiting the capital's key attractions: the Grand Palace, Wat Po (home to the reclining Buddha) and Jim Thompson's house. Get used to Bangkok's different forms of public transport — the Skytrain, which winds its way through the skyscrapers and shopping malls, the public taxi boat, a long-tail boat and, of course, the ubiquitous Thai tuk-tuk. This is a fun excursion that gives you a fantastic insight into the capital and the people who call Bangkok home.

  • An early start today for your private transfer to the airport to catch your internal flight to Phuket, a journey of around one and a half hours. Upon arrival at Phuket Airport, you'll be met by staff from Elephant Hills to take you and other guests to the Khao Sok National Park. The Elephant Hills Camp is a fantastic rainforest and elephant experience. The welfare of the elephants is at the heart of this camp, and it has received numerous awards for this. Upon arrival at the camp, meet the elephants and learn more about these magnificent creatures. You'll have the opportunity to help feed them in a small group session. After a traditional Thai lunch, take a jungle canoe paddling past stunning limestone karsts with an experienced guide in a small group.

  • Today, after you've had breakfast, you will transfer to a local mangrove forest to cruise through the water on a traditional Burmese junk boat. You will also have the chance to canoe through the waterways. After lunch, return to the main camp, where you may enjoy a cooking demonstration or dance performance.

  • After breakfast, you will head inland by road and then by boat for your scenic journey to the relatively untouched and stunning Cheow Larn Lake. This is a great place to be among nature, with more than 100 islands and limestone mountains rising up from the shore. Bring your swimming costume if you would like to swim in the lake's warm waters. Lunch will be served at a floating raft house on the lake where you can relax and take in the stunning scenery before returning to your camp in the afternoon.

  • This morning, you will have the option to join your guide and fellow guests on a walk through the jungle, listening to the chorus of the many primates, reptiles and birds that inhabit the national park. After lunch, take a small group transfer to your beach accommodation where you can spend the remainder of your vacation relaxing by the sea. Bangsak Village is a lovely boutique resort located on a beautiful beach. It has excellent facilities with a spa, swimming pool and a tour desk. Children under 12 years old are not allowed at this hotel.

  • Today is free to relax and enjoy your surroundings. In addition to the beach, there is plenty to do on Khao Lak, and your time can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. The nearby Similan Islands are one of the world's top dive sites, and there are great snorkeling trips out to the Surin Islands, which can be arranged from your hotel.

  • Day at leisure. You may like to consider a day trip to Pung Chang cave with its fascinating rock formations, which is accessed via a bamboo raft, or head out on a long-tail boat to visit the famous James Bond Island! These trips can be booked locally, or your specialist can pre-arrange a trip for you.

  • Today is your last day by the beach before heading home. You may like to relax by the water or head into Khao Lak town to try some of the fresh local seafood.

  • Your driver is on hand to collect you from the hotel for your private one-and-a-half-hour transfer to Phuket Airport in time for your onward flights home.
